Grandma's Buffet Shabby-chic Style Dining Room, Grand Rapids

Photos by Kaity

Grandma's buffet painted in a bold orange is adorned with lots of misc. candlesticks all painted silver and finished off with green candles. The branch is spray painted orange too and held up in a bronze trash can. Ribbon trees were handmade with poster board and white ribbon, sitting atop martini glasses.

OMG, I have the exact same buffet (in fact, I have the whole dining set that goes with it, too). I have been looking to unload it, but having seen this photo with this gorgeous color...maybe I need to rethink it! Thanks for the inspiration!

"I painted my grandma's buffet a bold orange and filled the buffet top with pillars, branches and other holiday accessories," Freng says.
Jennifer Ott Design added this to 4 Hot Color Trends to Consider for 2013
If you love this season's bright red orange but can't see it splashed all over your own walls, consider painting it onto an interesting piece of furniture.

Highlight accessories. Orange is the most visible color in dim light and stands out the best against water, hence its use on life rafts and by coast guards. An aircraft's black box is, in fact, orange.Orange demands to be seen, so it is perfect for highlighting the key elements of a design. This sideboard begs for attention and would be the perfect place to display a much-loved collection of artifacts.

Number four is, obviously, “What colors do you hate?” If this is your dining room, and you love Grandma’s buffet but hate orange, then we’ll have a little tweaking to do.
